SRS Plus: Conversations with school leaders

Learn from other school leaders practical ways to maintain a robust safeguarding culture in the face of a pandemic and the associated staffing and wellbeing issues.

This 40 minute conversation with a panel of school leaders will focus on how Christian Schools in NSW and the ACT have managed to maintain a robust safeguarding culture in the face of a pandemic and the associated staffing and wellbeing issues. CSA has asked Halloran Morrissey to facilitate this conversation with school leaders to gain insights in to how you have navigated the safeguarding concerns/challenges during 2022 and what areas you feel have been successful. This brief session will allow for the sharing of ideas in relation to safeguarding practices and will also provide an opportunity for school leaders to identify areas for further support in 2023.

Speakers

The course presenter will be either Kate Halloran or Clare Morrissey from Halloran Morrissey.
